I had a great morning today as part of a photography tour around the streets of Fremantle that's aimed at giving all participants the basic photography skills to take better photos whether around Perth or for future travel photography.
I will be taking running some of these courses in the coming weeks and months so it was great to pick up on the advice of other professional photographers in Perth as well as Sydney.
The aim of the course was to communicate in a 3 hour lesson some of the key principles and elements of photography such as line, texture, form, shape as well as tips on portrait photography in direct sunlight and shady conditions.
The tour took us on a leisurely stroll through the picturesque town of Fremantle, Western Australia starting at the Fremantle town hall and ending at my favorite destination...Little Creatures Brewery.
The photograph above was taken at the Moores gallery on Henry Street Fremantle. Aside from having without a doubt the best coffee in Fremantle (Moore & Moore Cafe) if not all of Perth, the Moores gallery hosts some amazing exhibitions. Currently there is a photographic exhibition on street art which features some fascinating photos of graffiti and derelict buildings including the famous South Fremantle Power Station. The top floor of the Moores gallery was in this case empty and i loved the light which was falling through the window on to the raw floorboards and rustic walls.
If you have any interest in participating in one of these photography courses please contact me and i will forward you all the details.
